Aging

Robert Boates
From:   The afterlife. Toronto: Seraphim Editions. 1998.

Eat carrots
Quit smoking
Practise T'ai Chi
Listen to Mozart
Follow sports
Ride a bicycle
Walk the dogs
Forget inheritance
Return to prayer
Fear no darkness
React the classics
Work on the house
Give up on love
Learn to relax
Plant a garden
Feed the birds
Sleep when able
Plan to make plans
Remember laughter
